Salomé (born June 21, 1939), born Maria Rosa Marco Poquet, is a female Spanish singer.

Salomé was born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. At the Eurovision Song Contest held in Madrid in 1969, she performed "Vivo Cantando", composed by Maria José Cerato with words by Aniano Alcalde. The song (along with the entries from Netherlands, United Kingdom, and France) shared first place that year.

Salomé recorded "Vivo Cantando" in 1969 for the Eurovision Song Contest in eight languages (Spanish, Catalan, Basque, French, German, Italian, English, and Serbo-Croat).

The B-side to "Vivo Cantando" was "Amigos, Amigos" which came in second at the Spanish National Final in 1969.

Salomé appeared on TVE in May 2006, after the Eurovision Song Contest, to discuss the outcome with 1968 winner, Massiel, and a few other friends.
